21e8The Magic Number Company

21e8 is pioneering computational data markets - competitive ecosystems that combine algorithmic content creation with distributed data exchange. We've designed the first universal price system for digital information - a design pattern that encodes context and value into canonical identifiers of data - to displace ad-based ranking and recommender systems like those run by Google and Facebook. By combining information content and attention with proof-of-work, we're opening the potential for real-time supply chains of information for software, media and more.
